Findley to open hunting to select archers


Approximately 350 acres previously closed to hunting will be available to archers as part of a controlled hunt at Findley State Park, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources has announced.

Hunters must attend a drawing at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 21 if they are interested in hunting. The drawing will take place at the state park.

Hunts are archery-only. All hunters must possess a valid 2017-2018 hunting license and a valid deer permit in order to enter the drawings.

Names will be randomly drawn and those selected will be assigned a location to hunt in the park. Selected hunters will be eligible to hunt their assigned location from Nov. 11 to Dec. 17.

Hunters will be permitted to hunt with a partner. The partner is not required to attend the drawing, but must be defined prior to the start of the hunt on Nov. 11.
